Mounting Paper onto Canvas
My own method of mounting my paintings so that I can hang them without a frame or glass.
I've been doing this for ten years, and the first paintings are as good as day one. So I can recommend it for everyone who loves to paint on paper.
Acrylic Painting on Paper
This is a long video! I have many issues to discuss as I paint. First it’s about using basic materials that are not expensive. Then I show how to paint in “watercolour” style on paper, using acrylic paint. I demonstrate how to fix mistakes (which I do all the time! ) And how to iron the painting flat!

This video is mainly about blending. I paint a sky that goes from blue to pink, and then the harbour inlet that is reflecting. It is possible to achieve very smooth blends with affordable acrylic paint, as you will see as I work and talk!
This painting is on a large canvas, using a large brush. Which makes it easier than doing a small work.
I also demonstrate how you can squeeze all your paints into a divided plastic box. This method gives you more freedom to paint with whatever colours you want. They don't dry out!
